Kerryn Fields Melbourne, Australia

Her towering personality and enslaving voice meld perfectly with each song a journey in it’s own right.

Track Name: Nowhere Faster
Can you help me, find my freedom
I've been looking out everywhere I go
When I find out, and I'll find out
I'm gonna tell, everyone I know

Everybody's asking, everybody's asking,
But there's no answer
Everybody's running, everybody's running
Nowhere faster

This world we live in, it's disgusting
I see it, everywhere I go
Coz you're nothing, oh you're nothing
Without all that shit shine to show

Everybody's asking, everybody's asking,
But there's no answer
Everybody's running, everybody's running
Nowhere faster

Oh I came to conclusion
Everybody is living on everybody elses opinion

Can you help me, help me find, help me find my freedom
But don't tell me, show me
Oh God, show me I'm not dreaming

Everybody's asking, everybody's asking
What's the answer
When everybody's living, everybody's living under anger
Everybody's talking, everybody's talking louder and louder
Everybody's asking, everybody's asking
But there's no answer
Everybody's running, everybody's running
Nowhere faster
I guess I'm running, yes I'm running,
Nowhere faster
Track Name: Smoke Up The River
I won’t change my lover for there’s a chance that I am right
I’ve read between your covers and I’m hardly satisfied
Coz none of this makes any decent common sense to me
I was trying to be faithful, while you were patronizing me
Coz I’m free

I see, smoke up the river
And I feel, something deeper

So come gather all you sinners, come and validate your greed
Just throw a little dollar to the ones in poverty
And take it to confession boy you, get down on your knees
And all will be forgiven, if you only make believe

I see, smoke up the river
And I feel, something deeper

So lock your doors, and load your guns
Coz that is how, you think this war should be won
So come a little bit closer
Come closer to the water
Does it all seem unfamiliar
Or is it as you, remember

I see, smoke up the river
And I feel, something deeper
Track Name: Should I See You Again
I don’t know where you’re going
I know where you’ve been
I don’t need a reason, a meaning for the end
I don’t loose anymore sleep
Oh but even if I do
I wont loose a moment, thinking about you

So I’m not making amends
And I’m not willing to bend
I have nothing but love for you
Should I, see you again

I don’t know what you’re doing
I know what you’ve done
I don’t need a reason, for loving anyone

So I’m not making amends
And I’m not willing to bend
I have nothing but love for you
Should I, see you again

I don’t know if I should be willing
To cross the street to say hello
But to think I should keep on walking
Just like, just like I didn’t know

So I’m not making amends
And I’m not willing to bend
I have nothing but love for you
Should I, see you again
Track Name: The Letter
I wrote you a letter, I just don’t know if you’re gonna get it
Coz I don’t know where you are
I tried to forget it, but I wanted you to find out
Every word I said

But you travelled across the land, just to make me understand
Just how, just how, just how far
How far you wanna be
You wanna be from me

So I walked along the pavement, just to hope that I could take it
To anywhere you are
I tried to remember if there’s anything I left you
That would remind you where I stand

But you travelled across the land, just to make me understand
Just how, just how, just how far
How far you wanna be
You wanna be from me


Well I got down on my knees and I wept for your love
I got down on my knees and I prayed that you’d come

Now I don’t think I can find you, unless this is all behind you
Could you leave it where you are
Oh just know that I open up my door, every morning
Just in case you might walk by
Track Name: Just Because
Have you ever felt like, you could tell yourself it’s all in your head
Convince your imagination it had powers of creation
Coz every day I search for ways and better days to make the dreams
A little less crazy
I knew that I could never try to look both ways and never lie
Maybe I would love you if I was blind, if I was blind
It’s a shame, shame shame to think my life would have to change, yeah it’s a shame, shame, shame
The only shame
Guess I was thinking too hard to think my family would know no different, would know no different

Yeah,
Just because you read my body like we’re never apart
And just because you read my words before I open my mouth
Now I’m not sure if I want this
No, no none of this means anything

So you found my face in my hiding place, but you only counted to five
Stayin longer tonight let you tell me it’s alright - It’s alright
Who to call to let it out, first to call then word of mouth
What the hell do I do now
Find someone just anyone, guaranteed to turn and run
Practise on the ones I don’t care about, yeah find anyone

Yeah,
Just because you read my body like we’re never apart
And just because you read my words before I open my mouth
Now I’m not sure if I want this
No, no none of this means anything

So I crossed the line to talk
Yeah surprised me
Yeah, oh surprise it’s easier to walk
It’s e-e-easy to walk

Just because you read my body like we’re never apart
And just because you read my words before I open my mouth
Now I’m not sure if I want this
No, no none of this means anything

None of this means anything
Track Name: Broken Down Heart
You’ve done something bad I’m gonna tell my Mum and Dad
That you have gone and broken down my heart
I’m gonna tell my best friends too and they’re gonna gang up on your
Coz you have gone and broken down my heart

Oh I’m, such a fool
To go on and believe you
You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all
That you’ve turned out just to break my heart

I’m gonna hatch this devious plan
I’m gonna catch your bright red hand
Now you have gone and broken down my heart
And when I get these hands on you
I’m gonna put my curse on you
Coz you have gone and broken down my heart

Oh I’m, such a fool
To go on and believe you
You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all
That you’ve turned out just to break my heart

Oh I cried, like a fool cries
When her lover, is a lie

You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all
That you’ve turned out just to break my heart

So don’t think that we are through
I’m not finished yet with you
Coz you have gone and broken down my heart
Track Name: Lips So Sweet
You’ve got a hot temper, I can’t hardly breathe
Though if I tried to tell ya, oh no you’d only spit on me
You know I bust my bones, and I break my back
Just to give you my sweet love, that I don’t get back

Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world
And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet
With them lips so sweet, with them lips so sweet

You know I met your Ma, boy she does like me
And your hot sister, oh yes she can count on me
When I made your breakfast, when I made your bed
I near broke my shoulder, on your big fat head

Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world
And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet
With them lips so sweet, with them lips so sweet

Now I know you, you’re gonna crawl right back just like you always do
oh my oh my
Now you know I, I’m gonna take you back oh yes oh my oh my
oh why oh why

Just give me a chance, to mark my words
I will kick her ass if only you’d catch me first

Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world
And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet
with them lips so sweet, so sweet, so sweet, so sweet, so sweet so sweet them lips so sweet
Track Name: Lovely
I’ve never had such a good friend, when I’m with you I don’t pretend
You make me laugh, and give me reason
Speak the words that I believe in

Love, it’s love, lovely to have found you
Love, love, so much love that I will give you
When I fell from so damn high, hung my head in my hands and cried
In the darkness you had heard, I never asked you but there you were

Love, it’s love, lovely to have found you
Love, love, all my love that I will give you

Spend my days, all my nights
I’ll be there with all my might, with Love

Love, love, all my love that I will give you
It’s Lovely, it’s lovely, lovely to have found you
Track Name: Trains & Whistles
Trains keep on rollin’ thru our little town
It all feels different, without you around

I shook your hand, that shook the hands of pain
Said it all makes you stronger, yeah that’s just the way

So I’ll see ya, when I see ya
It’s been mighty fine to have got to know ya
We’ll sing our songs again, drink to long lost friends
Oh, we’ll bring the house down
When my train comes to town

Oh we drank the finest Whisky
All the stories we could tell
Oh you never tired of listening
Yeah you knew me so well

Taught me about Jesus
And let me make my own mind
Said we all get redemption
At the end of the line

So I’ll see ya, when I see ya
It’s been mighty fine to have got to know ya
We’ll sing our songs again, drink to long lost friends
Oh, we’ll bring the house down
When my train comes to town

When my train comes to town
Track Name: Wear Your Jacket
I’ve got big hands I wear blue jeans and in my pockets are great big things
And in my heart I can just tell that you don’t know me very well
I’m unsure in your acquaintance you and me we are but strangers
Wear your hat from side to side or front to back hell I don’t mind

I’ll pick you outta my pocket
I’ll put you on the sidewalk
But I’ll thank you very nicely
As I walk away politely
But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight
No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight

But you’ll think of every kind of line for every kind of peace of mind
But I’ve held every conversation on every kind of medication
I can drink down to the drop, Yes Mam I’ll be standing up
You watch me fill up every vein with every drop of every rain

I’ll pick you outta my pocket
I’ll put you on the sidewalk
But I’ll thank you very nicely
As I walk away politely
But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight
No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight

Don’t try to run, your fingers in my hair
Go on, get going, go home now – get on outta here

Don’t get me wrong I don’t believe that you’re not good enough for me Or that you have got in my way or I don’t have the time of day
You just be good now and behave, try to curb your wicked ways
As you walk on in the night, just you try to stay alive

I’ll pick you outta my pocket
I’ll put you on the sidewalk
But I’ll thank you very nicely
As I walk away politely
But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight
No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight
